Tinton May Just Be The Most Haunting And Well-Preserved Ghost Town In South Dakota

Thanks to our rich history of both mining and the railroad, South Dakota has seen its fair share of towns come and go, usually because of the collapse of these once vital companies. While you can have your pick of just about any area and find deserted communities nearby, we recommend going out of your way a bit to check out Tinton: the most haunting and well-preserved ghost town in the Mount Rushmore State.
